The Haifa District Attorney's Office filed an indictment on Wednesday in the Haifa District Court against a man accused of aggravated intentional sabotage motivated by racism or hostility to the public.

According to the indictment, the man smashed windows of a car belonging to three Jewish residents as they visited the tomb of a <i>tzaddik</i> (righteous Jewish man) on Friday.

The defendant, a 21 year old man, shouted "Jews, Jews" after the three, before attacking their car with a hammer, causing over NIS 1,000 worth of damage.

The District Attorney's Office also filed a request that the defendant be remanded in custody for the duration of the proceedings against him.
